Outdoor Industry Association has three advisory councils to lead and guide the work in Sustainability, Trade Policy and Recreation Policy. These advisory councils influence OIA initiatives, educate fellow OIA members and help foster a thriving outdoor industry.
The Sustainability Advisory Council supports OIA sustainable business in its mission to empower every outdoor company to take bold steps to achieve positive impact. This is primarily demonstrated through their leadership and guidance of the OIA Climate Action Corps.

The Recreation Advisory Council is an advisory board that provides guidance to OIA on various recreation-related policy issues, such as: engagement on the Land Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), public land funding initiatives, protection and new designations of our public lands for recreation use and ensuring access to outdoor recreation for the next generation.
The Trade Advisory Council reviews U.S. trade policy, relevant federal legislation and international trade negotiations, develops federal trade policy that may affect OIA membership and recommends policy positions to OIA government affairs staff and OIA leadership.
